Joe Carducci is a writer, record producer, and former A&R executive, formerly most closely associated with the influential record label SST Records.

He was born in Merced, California in 1955 but grew up in Naperville, Illinois. He also lived for a time in Chicago in the late 1970's where he ran an independent mail-order record retailer. From 1981 to 1986 he was an A&R man and record producer for SST Records, working with among other bands the Minutemen, the Meat Puppets, Black Flag and Saccharine Trust.

He wrote lyrics for the song "Jesus & Tequila" by the Minutemen (Double Nickels on the Dime, 1984) and "Chinese Firedrill" from Mike Watt's 1995 solo album Ball-Hog or Tugboat?. He now resides in Centennial, Wyoming, where he runs Redoubt Press and O&O Recordings. Carducci is probably best known as the author of Rock and the Pop Narcotic.

Carducci wrote the screenplays for the 1998 films Rock and Roll Punk and Bullet On A Wire, and has other script projects in the works. Carducci has also been known to contribute to bimonthly rock periodical Arthur.
